I think that grade system is so silly. If you fail the first test, you know you’ll fail the class and thus, have no motivation or purpose to keep trying.
At this point, it’s best to talk to your professor and ask for some leeway. Maybe there’s some extra credit you can do? Maybe he’ll be willing to average your grade if you ace the next few exams? Show him that you want to pass the class and is willing to put in the hard work it takes. If you’re sincere, he may give you another chance.
Even if you fail, it’s not the end of the world. Re-take the class in the summer and get a better grade. Show that you’re not a quitter and let your future college know that too in your application.
this is so INTENTS
i wanna do this
Are we just gonna ignore that pun

When you use phrases like, “as long as you’re healthy” these are just a few of the people that your language is excluding. No one owes you health. Being healthy does not make you a good person, and being unhealthy does not make you a bad person. The state of a person’s body does not reflect their soul, their mind, or their worth as a human being.
Some people are extraverts when they’re sociable and outgoing, but introverts can be the same. They can get along well with others and strike up conversations anywhere. They’re not shy; they just find it more rewarding to be alone or with close group of friends.
You can be the life of the party all week long, but if at the end, you feel like you need to be alone for a bit and recharge, then you’re more likely an introvert. An highly extroverted person is energized from social gatherings and interactions, not drained by it. During one of my business courses, we discussed this topic in class and I think this is a good way to examine whether you’re more of an introvert or extravert. Next time you go to a party, think about how you feel afterward. Truth is, all of us carry aspects of both. :)
If you want to know your personality type, you can take the Myers Briggs Test: http://www.humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/jtypes2.asp
It may not necessarily be valid, but it is reliable. That means that if you take it 5-10 years from now, you’ll most likely get the same results.
It depends on a lot of factors… but overall, it would be a good major if it’s something you enjoy and understand.
What do you want to do? Do you want to rekindle the relationship? If so, then make the effort to talk to him and start from there. It seems like you’re really fond of him… but if you’ve been hurt in the past and you know he’s no good for you, then it’s best to keep your distance.
